Households may apply for additional bins to give extra capacity for general waste depending on the number of residents.
In normal circumstances households with 4 or fewer permanent residents will be provided with one red-lidded bin for general waste with a capacity of 180 litres.
Wherever possible we encourage residents to recycle or compost waste to reduce the amount of general waste needing disposal.
|Number of residents in household||Bin capacity (litres) and number of bins|
|5||1 x 240 litre|
|6||2 x 180 litre|
|7||2 x 180 litre|
|8||1 x 240 litre and 1 x 180 litre|
|9||1 x 240 litre and 1 x 180 litre|
|10||2 x 240 litre|
If you are eligible for additional capacity for general waste disposal you can request this online. You will need to supply proof of occupancy for all residents including children, and a waste audit may be carried out at any time to make sure you're recycling as much as possible.
Examples of proof of occupancy could be:
You will need an Ashfield 24/7 account to make your request. If you don't already have an account, signing up takes a few simple steps. Once you have an account, you can log in, and select ‘New Requests’ to submit your request.
If you can't provide proof of occupancy, or you don't recycle as much as possible additional capacity for general waste may be refused or withdrawn.
If you are using unauthorised bins for additional capacity these will be removed.
If you can not make the request using the online form you can contact us by:
If you can’t move your bin to the edge of the property yourself, let us know. We can collect your bin from its storage place on your property.
